The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Nevada holds a yearly design
competition. The submittals for the competition are archived in the
UNLV Architecture Studies Library. This archive is a collaborative project
of the UNLV Architecture Studies Library (ASL), the AIA Las Vegas, and
These web pages are organized by year. On the annual charts you will find
the project's name, building type, location, architectural firm, interior
and landscape firm (if applicable), images, and whether the entry won an
award and what type. An entry number is given to retrieve the archival information.
The complete archive is available for your use at the Architecture Studies
Library, in the Paul B. Sogg Architecture Building, University of Nevada,
Las Vegas. As much as possible has been placed on these web pages. Full
documentation and high resolution images are only accessible in the library
(ASL Special Collections).
A brief list of the type of visual information collected is also given in
the annual chart. Entry forms include a project design description, type
of construction, square footage, and list of consultants. Photos, drawings,
and design sketches for a majority of the projects are on record. More in-depth
information and slides of winning projects are also on file.
listing of AIA Nevada Design Award projects (1997- present) provides project name, firm name, and project number which links
to additional materials on the UNLV Architecture Studies Library AIA

Architecture Studies Library in the Sogg Architecture Building to see
the project binder that provides text and often additional images, plans
and elevations not displayed on the web page. Binders are arranged by
